Osteopaths specialise in hands-on, musculoskeletal health care. They focus on the total body health by treating and strengthening the muscles, bones, joints and connective tissue to positively affect the body's nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems. Both Osteopathy and Craniosacral Therapy are appropriate for patients of all ages, right from new born to elderly.
ACC treatment is available, if you've had an injury your osteopath can lodge a claim for you.
Depending on the needs of the patient, Osteopathic techniques may include soft tissue massage, articulation or manipulation of the joints, or subtle cranial handling. It can be a highly effective treatment for back and neck pain, frequent headaches, peripheral joint pain, repetitive stress injury, postural imbalance, sport injury, acute or chronic pain and stress.
